Senior Photography

2018 Senior Session Packages

It’s that time of year, senior picture time!  I love photographing seniors, I love being able to get creative and still capture classic portraits of these beautiful young men and women.

For my senior packages this year I am offering two different options.  The first option is my standard 1 hour session. This session will include up to 15 fully edited digital images with print release, an online gallery where you can view your images and share with family and friends, and a custom Facebook cover with some of your amazing images!

The Senior Package option is a 2 hour session and includes 25 fully edited digital images with print release, 16 wallets, an 11×14 print on styrene (view info here), and a $25 print credit towards any prints or print products (gallery wraps, keep sake items, etc).  This option also comes with the online gallery and custom Facebook cover collage.

Galleries will include around 10 or more extra images and you will get the option to choose the ones you wish to have.  Selected images will be sent to you via email to download and save as you wish on your computer or phone.  Images are full resolution, perfect for printing at any size.  I do offer prints and print products through a professional photographer only print lab but you are not required to print through me.  I do highly recommend printing your pictures at actual print labs and avoid one hour labs.  Pictures printed at one hour labs may look very different from the images you see on your computer or phone, see examples HERE.  If you do not wish to print through me (no hard feelings really!) I would be happy to point you towards some good print labs that you can order from yourself.

For seniors I do offer graduation announcements as well! I have lots of templates for announcements, invitations, thank yous or any other type of card you would like.  The $25 print credit included in the Senior Package can certainly be used towards cards.  Cards come in packs of 25 and range from $40-50/pack depending on the card chosen.

*Not my images on the cards.  I do have these cards if you wish to see paper types.

I will be booking senior sessions all year, even in the middle of winter if that is what you would like!  I am thinking about offering a Senior Mini session early spring for anyone needing last minute pictures.  Turn around time for images are around 2 weeks, so plenty of time to get cards or pictures ordered for graduation!

I will start booking 2019 Seniors summer of 2018!

What to wear to your photo session

What to wear is one of the biggest decisions to make when having family, senior or any other type of photo sessions done.  Everyone wants to look there best and of course they do, the pictures you take will be (hopefully) printed and kept as memories for a very long time.   But have no fear, it is not as hard of a decision as you may think.  To start off, here are some helpful tips to picking out what to wear for your photo session.

Your Style-
First and foremost, these photographs are all about you and your family. That means they should convey your personality and style preferences. If you’re earthy and casual, stick with that. If you prefer glitz and glam, play it up. It’s important to be yourself during your session, so wear something that reflects you. If you wear something you’d typically never put on, you’ll probably feel uncomfortable. Don’t dress your kids in clothes that are too small or shoes that don’t fit. Most importantly, wear stuff you love, stuff that is comfortable and makes you feel amazing. Comfort and confidence go a long ways and can make or break your session.
With that said, you can still amplify your personal style by playing with colors and textures. Find a nice mix of neutral colors and then add a few pops where you can. It could be an accessory, shoes/boots, a jacket, bold lipstick, or a bright undershirt. Textures are great as well to add a little something extra but be sure not to overdo it. Think ruffles, lace, polka dot rain boots, knit sweaters, faux fur, bring some things to break it up. Don’t be shy! These are your pictures, have fun with them. If you want to wear a prom dress, or have your family dress as superheroes, you go for it!!

Plan Ahead-
Start thinking about what you plan to wear right away. For family sessions look for coordinating colors instead of all matching. Add in patterns, but limit it to a couple people instead of everyone. If you plan to dig out an outfit from the closet, make sure it fits and is clean weeks before. A few nights before your session, lay out all the clothes and accessories you want to bring. Make sure everything is clean, pressed and ironed. Do your hair, wear some makeup but keep it natural for you. It is important to feel good about yourself while remaining who you are.

Details Matter-
Feel free to bring multiple accessories to play with throughout your session. Hats, jewelry, shoes, hair barrettes or bands, ties, watches and anything else you can think of. These details can make your session really stand out.

Now just decide on a color (there are just so many good colors) and start picking outfits that represent you and what you love, and let me do the rest 🙂
